18 & UNDER TENNIS With over 300 junior teams, from 24 clubs, participating in weekly competition on the North Shore alone, tennis remains one of New Zealand’s most popular participation sports. Junior Interclub competitions for 10-18 year olds run from October to April, whilst tournaments and holidays camps run all year round, so check out a club near you! Tennis Hot Shots is a starter program for children aged 12 and under. Players follow a progressive pathway using red, orange and green balls which bounce lower, travel slower and are therefore easier to hit. A learning through play philosophy means children learn the game of tennis not just the skills. Through playing the game, understanding tactics and having fun kids will fall in love tennis.

GAME TIME TENNIS A pre-interclub competition framework for new and developing 10 & Unders. Players are given a passport and stamps are collected as they compete in the series of tournaments. There are 3 tournaments for red, orange and green ball players each term.

Check out the new fun, social, group tennis program for adults of all abilities. It involves fast paced drills done to music. A great way to keep fit and stay in shape, while having fun in a social environment.
